Marion Ogeto

Program Officer, End Sexual Exploitation

Marion Ogeto joined Equality Now in January 2021. As the Program Officer for End Sexual Exploitation, Marion works to advance Equality Now’s End Sexual Exploitation strategy in Africa initially with a focus on Kenya and Malawi, with expansion of the work to other countries in East and Southern Africa.

Her home town is Nairobi. However, she is currently living on the outskirts of Nairobi in Kajiado North. She speaks English, Kiswahili, and Spanish.

Marion holds a law degree from Strathmore University, and she is an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya. She is very proud of this, given she is a 1st generation graduate. She is also a member of the USAID CECA Digital Youth Council where they analyse and devise strategies on ending online harm against the youth. She further holds certifications in women’s rights and digital rights through training and online courses.

Marion strongly believes that the world would be a better place only if everyone acted/did something when they saw injustice/ in the face of injustice- rather than remaining silent. One of her favorite quotes is: “Silence in the face of injustice is complicity with the oppressor

That is why she is proud to be a feminist because feminism to her means seeing women and girls facing injustice and doing something about it. The latter part holds so much power because that’s what will make the difference- that’s what will prevent more women and girls from being subjected to any form of injustice.

Outside of work, she loves watching shows and creating music playlists. In another life, she would have pursued a career in music.
